It is a wonderful book about how money is never a permanent solution to person's live. I learned growing up in West Texas that " 'it ain't the money you go'. The greatest asset you can have are your friends and family."

An enjoyable, breezy look at the famous people in history who went broke. There are quite a few of them, and some will surprise you.
